Mecum Auctions concludes its 2017 auction schedule this coming weekend with a three-day sale in the Kansas City (Missouri) Convention Center, where around 700 vehicles are expected to cross the block.

Mecum has been staging twice-a-year auctions in KC for more than 25 years. In March, it sold more than 300 vehicles at an auction that generated $7.3 million in sales. Its November/December sale in 2016 did more than $8 million with 357 vehicles going to new owners.

Topping the docket for the auction this weekend is a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 RS that has undergone a professional rotisserie restoration with a 302cid V8 engine from Precision Engines.

  1. I get an e-mail nearly every day. Today when I want to check in to see if my relatives are sitting in the front row, no e-mail. And I can’t find out how to get to the auction from the website. By the way, I have always had difficulty finding the auction from the website. Could be more user friendly.
